Snowbird

Last evening Marilyn & I went to Snowbird.  We took the tram to the top of the mountain. The ride up/down was pretty cool and the scenery from the peak was awsome.  From there you could see Salt Lake City and Heber.  You could also see the ATV trails up from AF canyon.  There was still quite a bit of snow up there near the top.  I didn't realize there was an alpine slide at Snowbird...there is.  There is also a fancy zip line to ride, an outdoor mechanical bull to ride, bungie jumping on trampolines, bouncy castles, a cool looking ropes course platform, and other cool stuff. We ate dinner there (On Novell of course).  It's a lot prettier place than Park City...I haven't been up that canyon since I was 18 years old going to Alta to ski.  I'd forgotten what a beautiful place it was.  I recommend it for an evening.  DETAILS

Sounds fun! I wonder how costs compare with park city. I didn't know they had all that stuff either.

It was the first time I have been in that canyon at all. Actually, I think it is the prettiest canyon I have ever seen in Utah (excluding Natl. Parks) Dastrups have got it made!

I didn't know we had that stuff so close, either. We'll have to check it out! So where did you eat and how was it?

We ate at the Atrium Patio....I don't know how much it was. Probably pricey. The food was OK. I wouldn't make it a destination. But it was sure pretty in that canyon. We did see, distantly some Camp grounds.
